Motorola has today announced that their rugged and water resistant Android handset the Motorola Defy – will get its Android 2.2 love for sure. The only downside is that Motorola is expected to roll out the update in the second quarter of the next year i.e. sometime in Q2 of 2011. Sadly, the company also announced that the Motorola Milestone XT720 won’t get an update to Android 2.2 at all and will remain stuck with Android 2.1 forever.
Here is the official announcement from Motorola :
Today we can confirm that in EMEA we plan to upgrade Motorola DEFY to Android 2.2 (FroYo) in the second quarter of next year and that Milestone XT720 will remain on Android 2.1. Anyone looking for information about this and updates for other regions should go to our forum.
Hopefully, Motorola won’t delay the Android 2.2 update for the Defy to Q3. If my memory serves me right, no manufacturer has been able to roll out the Froyo update for their handset on their scheduled date.
